    After two flights of nearly 20 minutes each (only 2 batteries in the H) mine was still at 50% in the ST24.
    The first flight with 3 batteries in the H i landed (no ST 24 warning) because of my cold fingers after 28-30 minutes; battery in the ST24 was about 40%.

    The battery in a ST-24 is prolly the same as used in the ST-10+ and ST-16, a lithium ion. Best charge rate for a lithium ion is .7C. Anything faster/higher causes the safety chip that's fitted to all li-on's to cut off the charge before max capacity is achieved.
